Stacy Flood's From Kings to Controllers uses Shakespeare's The Rape of Lucrece to dive into current issues of discrimination against women in video games, technology,and the arts. As one woman struggles to build a game that empowers, she is met with trials throughout each aspect of her endeavor – from within the gaming world and her own navigation of it. What emerges is a fun, raucous, inventive, yet insightful play sure to add thought beyond the plastic buttons and flashing pixels with which we are all so familiar.

This play will take you down a wild spiral as it explores one woman’s struggle to create something new in a world dangerously resistant to change. In a time when Gamergate, Sony hacks, and cyber terrorists rule our society, how much will one woman risk? From Kings to Controllers dives headfirst into the fear we all face when we stand alone against a faceless monster.
